His actual name is Mark Townley. Or Ashraf Islam. Or Antonio Mandez. Or you know just about anything. He’s an international man of mystery. Which is to say he’s a con artist and an idiot.

Also a wannabe terrorist. And possibly mentally ill. And yes that’s him in the photos.

A London court was told on Friday how Co Down man Mark Townley, who changed his name to Ashraf Islam by deed poll in 2010, confessed to police he had “advanced plans” to kill the royal.

The heavily tattooed 31-year-old, from Bangor, walked into a police station in May, the day after Drummer Lee Rigby was killed in Woolwich, south east London, and told an officer of his intentions.

Islam described Drummer Rigby as a “soft target” and said he didn’t agree with the gruesome murder of the serviceman.

As stupid as this sounds, he did have a semi-plausible plan worked out.

Islam had been watching the Horse Guards Parade and planned to disarm an officer while disguised as a tourist and use that weapon to kill the prince.

He then schemed to send a phone warning to create a diversion.

I’m not saying it would have worked, but dumber assassination plots have.

During an interview with Sunday Life, the once clean cut Islam who described himself as a “self confessed narcissist” shared bizarre photographs of him posing with models wearing both lacy underwear and Muslim garb.

He admitted to using several pseudonyms to commit fraud across the UK.

But he said he was back in Bangor to make a fresh start, reinventing himself as a “part-time” Muslim working in the porn business and on his self-help book written while in Maghaberry Prison.

I don’t particularly go with the mental illness defense, but in this case...

Raised as a Christian, he has a history of criminal offences for fraud but was radicalised after his last spell behind bars in 2011.

A lot of cons do convert in prison. And that seems to have happened here.

    Considering on how pro-Muslims the Royal family is – I find this ironic.

    Correction – not pro-Muslim just anti-Semitic

      How about some examples of their “anti-semitism”?
      You Jews are really boring with your “anti-Semitic” claptrap, like blacks and their racism you pathetic creeps have to be the eternal victims.
      Grow up Jewboy!

      • Gee

        Let’s see wearing Nazi uniforms to parties. Aiding the Germans during and after the war by violating international laws that they signed sending Jews back into Nazi Germany AFTER they knew about the death camps.

        Instead of allowing Jews into the Mandate they made sure that less than 20,000 got there during the entire War and yet allowed over 600,000 Arabs into the Mandate.

        The list is much longer – but then you have the brains of an Arab

      The Royals of Europe are not dumb and are very aware of the danger islam poses. Harry is a very visible Royal who despises islam, the rest are very good at hiding it.

  • Veracious_one

    it’s clear that Islam appeals to those of marginal intelligence…

    Wearing fancy dress is “anti-Semitic”? Do you have any idea how stupid you sound?
    The Royal Family have no legislative duties, idiot.
    There were no death camps known to the British in September 1939, after that there was no movement of people between Britain and Germany.
    Allowed 600,000 Arabs into the Mandate? Well it was, and is Arabia, chum, Arabs have natural rights to move around in their own land. So what right did the 20,000 Germans, Poles, Russians, Ukrainians, etc. have to go and settle in another peoples place? Oh yeah, I forgot they are only Germans, Poles, Russians, etc. (and Americans) when it suits them. In reality you are Jews, who have loyalty to other Jews only, the Goy exist only to be exploited. Do you ever wonder why you Jews are universally detested?
